Tile panel

It's not very common to see a curved tile pannel like this one (private house at Oeiras).

Since I've been in México I've developed a new appeciation for tiles because of their diversity. So much beautiful art can be achieved with them. I wonder how the curve on this one was achieved.

Maybe not so common, but if you would find it anywhere it would be in Portugal! :-)

(Nothing in Portuguese from Léia today :-(! )

Jacob said...

I can understand why that is not common...my goodness, it must hard to do and very expensive!

But it certainly looks great.

Good photo of it, too, JM.

Very nice. It must be a job to get curved tiles to stick!
